Should state governments be responsible for paying the cost of college education?

  • State governments should be responsible for paying the cost of college tuition.

    State governments should be responsible for paying the cost of college tuition.This can actually be a good investment on the part of states because a better educated populace is a healthier populace that actually costs the government a lot less in the long run than if they had not gone to college.

  • Yes the government should pay for college

    We work a lot to try and get into a college so we get out of it becase of payment isuse. Thats unfair. Many people want to get into college not just me hopfully in the future the government agrees to pay for our colleges. So since i am still 11 years hopefuly in the future for me the government pays for colleges

  • Yes, 100%

    The US Constitution does not authorize congress to transfer sums of money for general education purposes. The reason States can't afford their schools is because they don't consider the full costs of implementing mandates since those costs are deceptively shielded for a limited time by federal aid. In addition the largesse that the congress passes on to collegiate schools is the main factor driving inflation of school costs. If the government is obligated to pick up the tab, the there is no limit to what they can charge, since only certain people qualify for aid, those who pay out of pocket are screwed. Today most schools operate as public works projects for employing teaching-degree holders. The costs of schools as they currently operate is not justified by the results.

  • No they should not be responsible

    No, I do not think that state governments should be responsible for paying the cost of college education, but they can subsidize it. Too many college students do not take college seriously, which could cost the states a lot of money. Students should pay on their own after working hard.

  • They should not.

    The state governments should not be responsible for paying the cost of college education or any other form of higher education. There are plenty of grants and scholarships available to people who want to get a college education but can not afford it. If you can not afford it, then you should not go.

  • No, state governments should not be responsible for paying the cost of college education.

    No, state governments should not be responsible for paying the cost of college education. That would put too much of a burden on tax payers. College education is important but it is just not financially responsible for the state to pay for every students college education, that's what student loans are for.

  • State governments should not be responsible for paying the cost of college education.

    State governments should not be responsible for paying the cost of college education because they don't have enough money. Students who truly want to attend college should be able to pay some of the cost. Also, the federal government should be required to defray some of the costs of operating colleges.

  • Not entirely

    They should be funding state colleges more than they are (look at what URI gets from the state, it's ridiculous), but can't be held responsible for the entirety of the funding. States need to be footing more of the bill than they are, but they also should be getting much more federal help.

  • No, state governments shouldn't be responsible for paying for college.

    The states already struggle and fight to get enough money to fund schooling through the 13 years students are required to attend. The state can't take on anymore burden when the federal government is so eager to give away money to other countries instead of keeping it here where the actual taxpayers live. Education is in mess but the state can't expect to pay for college when it may not benefit their state.

  • NO

    Federal Governments should be be paying the cost of college education since most of U.S. residents' tax money goes to war. State governments are already responsible for the important needs of the states. Therefore, the Federal Government should withdraw some of the tax money they sent for war supplies and send it to universities/grant-loan companies instead.

  • State Governments Shouldn't Have To Pay For Educations

    The cost of paying for college education should not solely rest on the shoulders of state governments. They should pay some of the cost, but not all. That amount of money is a ridiculous amount when you consider loans and everything else that costs in school, then look at the amount of schools in just one state.
